2. Introduction to the project ALLinHE

Ruud Duvekot, Inholland, projectleader ALLinHE


Explanation of the goals and mission of the project:

      • ALLinHE is about linking the systematics of Validation of Prior Learning (VPL) to a practical strategy for social inclusion of underrepresented and non-traditional target groups in higher education (HE).

      • ALLinHE aims at strengthening and further developing/implementing VPL as a multi-targeted approach for empowering and integrating underrepresented groups by:

        • guiding them with VPL to transparency of their HE-learning opportunities ánd

        • strengthening VPL as an innovative methodology for making universities more accessible and adapted to lifelong learning-needs of all EU-citizens.


3. Round the table: getting to know each other

All partners and the external evaluator introduced themselves.

d. Implementation (WP4)



    • 3rd meeting in March 2013 in Paris

e. Valorisation (WP5)



  • To other experts, continents, countries  making clear which groups, part of WP5. Exploitation/valorisation plan + list invitations, already in meeting 2, connect to learning community and then updated

  • 1st biennale (A‘dam, Mar2014)

  • Raising awareness campaign

      • Involve marketer at local level

      • local plan and share with others

f. Q&E-plan (WP6)



  • internal evaluation and quality management.

g. 3rd country partners from Korea


    • Present at 1st, 3rd & 5th meeting


    • WP3 workshop ACBS masterclass

    • WP4 Korean Pilot + march meeting Paris + report

    • Expertise in academic credit accounting system



5. Work-Package 3: the VPL-approach

Ruud Duvekot, Inholland, projectleader ALLinHE


The VPL-approach of ALLinHE will be based on:

  • The multi-targeted VPL-model with 3 main approaches: personal, summative and formative.

  • how to work with this holistic model will be tested in WP4

  • product in WP3 = a methodological framework for the project

  • Linking VPL to a target group

  • The draft-model is presented and commented; it will lead to an updated draft-model, to be sent in February 2012 for further comment.


6. The financial-administrative tasks

Ruud Duvekot, Inholland, projectleader ALLinHE



  • Explanation of the financial-administrative tasks:

  • The central message is: no proof of costs and spending, no subsidy.

  • All questions from the group related to the budget will be answered in the Brussels-projectleaders-conference in January 2012.

  • In February final instructions for partners on ways of working with templates.

Day 3, Tuesday, December 13, 2011


Chair: Ruud Duvekot
9. Work-Package 3: the national reports

Richard Rose, UN


The national reports aim at providing a state of the art of VPL in the partnercountries:

  • VPL levels of performance

  • The stakeholders

  • Challenges:

    • terminology,

    • aims  specify by stakeholders: win-win-win

    • sustainability (incl. cost-benefit analyse; long-/short-term)

    • traditions & practices

  • targetgroups: refugees, 50+, EU migrants, Ethnic minority, SEN disability

  • Key questions

    • Finding representation of target groups for testing the VPL-model

    • Within sector variables

    • It is about under-represented target group ‘at HE level’

  • Groupwork on target-group focus brings an overview of linkages partners and targetgroups. Decision will be made to cover all groups with at least three partnercountries!

Refugees


50+

EU Migrants

Ethnic minorities

Special needs

NL, KR

UK, SL, NL, KR, RO, FI

SL, DK, FR, CH

RO, FR

UK,DK, FI

  • The final grid will be presented in Feb 2012, together with the decision on who deals with which target groups.

  • Together with the grid for the national reports a methodological framework will be presented for working with case studies.



10. Work-Package 3: the model for training assessors and guiders

Kirsten Aagaard, NVR


Presentation of aims and outcomes of this product.

  • Aim is to support the VPL-model with expert-assessors and guiders.

  • 3-day training model

  • Concept of self-management of competences is added

  • Update-module (yearly required for the trained experts) is additional 1 day

Roadmap:


  • January 2012, steering group provides a basic programme for the training

  • February: reflection on programme (all partners)

  • March: rewriting

  • April: presentation of final training programme

  • May / June: reflection of professionals ( 4 assessor , 4 guiders) for training
  • Result will be a training-model that will support the testing in WP4. The experts in the testing-phase will be trained and/or validated against this model. This means that a group of assessors and guiders will be part of the testing; they will be recruited from the partner’s own list of assessors/guiders. Decision on whether they need the full or parts of the training programme is taken by the partners themselves; decision has to be accounted for!



11. The Quality-management (WP6)

Eila Burns, JAMK


Aims:

  • Recording progress on project proceedings

  • Accounting for planning and targets

  • Identifying problems in operation

  • Internal evaluation: questback - Online inquiry

  • External evaluation (independent); focus on assessment of sustainability of partnership and project results

Decision is made on preparing a simulation of the ACBS-model in the partnercountries by the steering group. This simulation will be helpful in designing a model for transferring competences/learning outcomes & credits.
12. The Academic Credit Bank System (ACBS)

Hae-Young Lee, NILE


A good practice from Korea: the Academic Credit Bank System (ACBS) is presented. See dropbox for the powerpoint. This is a model for credit-transfer: from learning outcomes to credits. See also decision nr. 14.
ACBS is one of NILE’s policy measures and is a Korean characteristic of the approach to lifelong education. ACBS is a system that maintains a network of formal, informal and non-formal education settings through institution accreditation and credit approval. For ACBS to be effectively run, NILE has constantly evaluated the institutions for quality assurance and puts Validation of Prior Learning (VPL) processes in place to recognize informal learning experiences at workplaces by developing and implementing criteria for accredited certificates that are eventually interpreted into credits.

ACBS is targeting those people who lost their first chance of learning in schools. Consumers of ACBS mostly are young students. Others are people in their mid-age, workers, women, foreign workers, and people in military service.
